Kickstarter David 3D PrintingRight now, 3D printing, while not in its infancy any longer, is still somewhere around its toddler years. Despite that, a new Kickstarter project by the name of gaming is already promising its “next generation”.

What makes this 3D printer different from others is that it doesn’t rely on simple filament. Instead, it utilizes multiple pelletized materials, creating a new means of production that could potentially revolutionize this already exciting step in technology.

They call it Fused Layer Extrusion (FLEX), their response to a lack of any multiple material 3D printers on the market. According to them, the use of more materials means better prints, which means more applications to the technology. A sound argument, and a wonderful development if their prototypes are all they are hyping them to be.

Apple Watch Voice Messaging FeatureI saw an interesting article on TheVerge this week about Apple Watch, and how it seems to be going back to the Press To Talk style of mobile communication. But is it really a trend of things to come, or just a fluke that will once again fade away?

For those whippersnappers too young to remember, PTT was a walkie-talkie style of mobile communication that was done between two phones within a short distance of one another. You pressed a button, talked and it came in through the frequency of another compatible phone in the area.

Apple WatchAlongside the introduction of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has finally unveiled their much anticipated Watch.

Surprisingly, it was called the Watch and not the iWatch, yet everyone is calling it that regardless. Rather than pack it full of features, they are instead focusing on customizing it to match the consumer who buys it, calling it a “new chapter in the relationship” between people and technology.

Unlike their other flagships, Apple is offering some variety for their Watch. They have the primary device, the Watch Sport, and the Watch Edition. Each is meant to match your personal style, with the first being silver or black stainless steel, the second silver or space grey, and third 18k yellow or rose gold with sapphire crystal. All come with a variety of bands you can choose from.

Apple introduces much anticipated iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus SmartPhones

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 PlusToday, Apple has officially entered into a new stage as they announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two new Smartphones that will feature a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch display.

The iPhone was what many people were expecting: a larger display, yet thinner and lighter body, and keep their amazing Retina HD screen technology. It also had a higher resolution, likely in response to Samsung’s insane res boosting with every new device.

But the iPhone 6 Plus was a bit of a surprise. It isn’t a shock that Apple decided to go into the phablet market, just that it seemed like it would have been with the iPhone 6. While the primary flagship device does come with a larger screen at 4.7″, the Plus boasts a full 5.5″. That is quite a jump.

HTC had experienced a lot of up and downs when it comes to their products. Some of their devices have tested well and gained their supporters, but they never quite manage to claw their way over other brands, in spite of having some pretty good smartphones.

Now they might have broken free of that curse. The Desire 820 will be the first to feature  Qualcomm’s Octacore Snapdragon 615 1 and 1.5 Ghz processing chips.
